The P VD 5660 FLEXCARD includes full embedded and external audio support

(PresseBox) (Weiterstadt, ) LYNX Technik AG, provider of intelligent interface products for the broadcast and professional audio & video industry, is launching a brand new FLEXCARD SD/HD Frame Synchronizer at IBC2008 - Booth # 8.A39

The new FLEXCARD SD/HD frame synchronizer (model: P VD 5660) expands the LYNX Series 5000 processing module line and offers the same superior performance that the LYNX signal processing solutions have become known for industry wide.

The P VD 5660 is a dual-channel SD/HD-SDI Frame Synchronizer with full audio support (embedded and external). Going beyond the typical functionality of a frame synchronizer, the P VD 5660 features numerous fully integrated options such as an up-conversion, down-conversion, cross-conversion, test pattern generation, internal signal routing, and aspect ratio conversion. Possibilities are endless with this new multi-purpose signal processing platform.

This new module provides auto-sensing SD and HD input support and the four independent outputs are user mapped to any of the two input sources or internal conversion resources It uses 10-bit internal processing for high quality format conversion and image quality. It also includes extensive audio processing capabilities featuring two 16 channel de-embedders, multiple internal mono crossbars with full audio processing, plus four independent output embedders that provide unrivalled audio processing flexibility. All features and user settings are accessible through the LYNX control system Windows GUI interface, and stored on internal flash memory.

LYNX FLEXCARD modules are designed all around flexibility. Invest in the functionality you need right now, and upgrade quickly by purchasing license codes for added features in the future. This eliminates the need to purchase new hardware, and absolutely no reprogramming is required.

The P VD 5660 is available in two models - one providing balanced AES3 I/O, the other unbalanced AES3id I/O.

Key Features of the new P VD 5660 FLEXCARD include:

- Offers two independent channels of fully featured frame synchronizers with user selectable signal routing. This allows the internal ARCs (aspect ratio converters), down / up / cross converters to be mapped across any input and output combination.

- Handles signals with minimal processing delay with a single frame delay when using the frame synchronizer with ARC and down converters feature set. And, only a two frame delay when the up converter feature set is enabled. Each channel of the frame synchronizer also has programmable video and audio delay depending on your system timing.

- Includes extensive audio processing capabilities featuring two 16 channel de-embedders, multiple internal mono crossbars with full audio processing, plus four independent output embedders that provide unrivalled audio processing flexibility.

- The module's functionality is customizable to your specific application. This means you can invest in the feature set you need right now and upgrade in the future without buying new hardware.

- Small form factor - modules are accommodated in a compact 2RU rack frame with each rack frame accepting up to 5 modules (10 channels). This makes the P VD 5660 FLEXCARD an ideal solution for outside broadcast applications or anywhere space is at a premium.
